Charming upscale hotel in Delhi Jan 17, 2009
The Claridges is an upscale business hotel with 150 rooms located a few kilometers west of the Karol Bagh area. It's not exactly a centrally located hotel and seemed a bit out of the way, but New Delhi is an enormous city, so I am not sure this is a downside. At any rate, The Claridges is actually one of Delhi's oldest upscale hotels, built in the 1950's, and has some ambiance of an older establishment, but is maintained in a modern condition. I had the pleasure to attend a cocktail evening at The Claridges during a week of celebration for an Indian wedding in Delhi. The hotel has quite a lot of ambiance and the staff attend to customers needs with the kind of professionalism one would expect from a hotel of this caliber. It's rather on the expensive side, but one of Delhi's more upscale hotels complete with a spa, salon and gymnasium spread over an area of over 15,000 sq ft, and one of the largest in India. The elegant d├ęcor, and blend of old-world charm and contemporary facilities make for a charming stay for the business or leisure traveler.

While there are a huge number of hotels in New Delhi, I've heard it said that the choice is somewhat limited to palaces or pits. This rings somewhat true I suppose based on my experience. For a review of one of the other Palace type hotels, see my review of the Taj Palace ( http://www.travbuddy.com/Taj-Palace-Hotel-New-Delhi-v647397)

A peaceful place to stay in a wealthy area Aug 03, 2009
The claridges is sort of a resort type place in the centre of "new dehli" which is the british area of dehli, and is unindian in that it is organized, peaceful, and no touts or starving children trying to get your rupees.

One nice touch is that it has a nice lawn with outdoor seating for their resturants, and a kick ass pool. It also has four resturants on site.

The good: The price of the room includes free dinner and free breakfast. The dinner is actually really good, they have a wide variety of fish, lamb dishes, indian foods with a twist, and some tastey burgers.

The rooms are really nice, and well kept up. They also have flat screen TVs, very niiiice!

The bad: You don't feel like your in India when you step outside. There are a lot of tourist monument stuff close by to visit, but you really still need to get a taxi unless you have faith in your directional abilities.

The ugly: I caught samonella poisening from the resturant.... puke puke puke!
